Designer Bridesmaid Dresses by Ghost at John Lewis

8 May

Ghost who are a well-known London fashion house are now designing a range of bridesmaid dresses for John Lewis. They have developed a fantastic range of dye-to-order dresses that are perfect for weddings. You can choose from a range of colours and your order will be dyed specifically for you. Prices start from £145.

John Lewis says “the finished Ghost pieces are unstructured, soft, feminine and gently bohemian; perennial Ghost looks which are cut to flatter curvaceous or boyish bodies alike”.

So if you have bridesmaids of different shapes and sizes this could save you hours of pounding the high street for the perfect colour and cut.

Sunday Summary: What a Nice Wedding

6 May

Last weekend when Joanne was busy with the blog and planning workshops I was sunning myself in the South of France. It was bliss. A few days of sun and long wine fuelled lunches was just what my hand needed to get a bit better. The splint did get lots of weird looks but at least it got me a fabulous seaview seat a few times so I’m not complaining.

Over one long lunch my husband muttered “oh god no here we go” when I spotted a wedding happening down of the street. Rushing off to take a look I watched the happy couple climb into a vintage car and take to the streets with lots of horns tooting and cheering all the way down the promenade. It seems even in Nice you’re not to posh to clap and cheer as the Bride and Groom drive past. Fabulous.

Next we took off to Monaco where another newly wed couple were climbing aboard their luxury yacht waving to everyone on the marina. With a beer costing around £13 a pint at Le Cafe de Paris in Monte Carlo though, you won’t find us mere mortals getting married there.

Safely back in the rain on Monday we saw the final choices of Bridesmaids dresses for a November wedding. Our favourite was a gorgeous Dessy dress. On Tuesday our feature fun showed how to be a wedding shoe showoff with shoe stickers by Nutmeg. On Thursday we took inspiration from the Royal Wedding and looked at hiring classic cars for your wedding ride. On Friday we shared a pre-wedding shoot by fabulous photographer, Kerry Ann Duffy. Watch out for the full wedding next week with the lovely Danielle and Chris who had an English Country Fair wedding.

Yesterday was the third part of our planning a vintage wedding special with vintage shoes galore. Next week it’s vintage wedding styling.

Enjoy the bank holiday weekend!
